Editorial Reviews

Review

"Planar Microwave Engineering is a massive, well-written book. It contains - contrary to many other RF books - a reasonable mixture of analytical equations and practical circuits suitable for rapid laboratory experiments and classes...it could well become the book of microwave engineering...Professor Lee's very friendly style and the high publishing standards make reading and using this text pleasant. As such Planar Microwave Engineering is suitable for everyday engineering use and for advanced university classes."
Pekka Eskelinen, IEEE AES Magazine

"[Five stars] This is an excellent book written in a light, clear manner by a knowledgeable and experienced engineer. References are annotated on each page and [this] has a major advantage in making the text directly readable while simultaneously underlining the relevance of the substance of the text...the comprehensive approach recommends itself to both student and professional engineers looking for a primer in this area."
Paul O'Leary, IEE Communications Engineer

"Finally, I can recommend a book to those wishing to learn about microwave and RF engineering. Professor Tom Lee's Planar Microwave Engineering: A Practical Guide to Theory, Measurement, and Circuits is a comprehensive and readable treatment of RF and microwave engineering. The 23 chapters of the book cover everything from the history of radio to using probes. Also included with the book is a CD with programs ranging from simulators, such as Puff, LTSprice, Sonnet, EZNEC, and Eagle, to tools such as AppCAD, PLL design, and Smith Chart manipulation...I highly recommend taking a look at Planar Microwave Engineering; it will be well worth your time."
IEEE Microwave Magazine

"... a fantastic CD-ROM ... that is full of all sorts of useful toys to help engineers design their circuits, both microwave and lower frequencies ... well written, printed and clear ... This book answers all your practical questions (or wakes you up to some you did not know existed!) in this complex field. Most highly recommended for all working in it."
Circuit World

Book Description

This book covers everything you need to know to design, build, and test a high-frequency circuit. Microstrip components are discussed, including tricks for extracting good performance from cheap materials. Connectors and cables are also described, as are discrete passive components, antennas, low-noise amplifiers, oscillators, and frequency synthesizers. Practical measurement techniques are presented in detail, including the use of network analyzers, sampling oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, and noise figure meters. A CD-ROM that contains a variety of design and analysis programs is included.

By Donald Alan Kay on May 4, 2006
Format: Hardcover
With the photo of the IC die on the cover and the word Planer in the title I was concerned this would be focused on monolithic integrated circuits but it is not. Excellent coverage of the topic in a light writing style that does not avoid the technical details. A great piece of work Mr Lee.

You have to like a book that is readable (almost conversational), gives historical insight (how 50&75ohm coax became the "standard"), at times is humorous ("But wait, 30 ohms(that gives optimal power handling) does not equal 50, even for relatively large values of 30.") but does not shy away from the some more advanced but interesting (at least to me) derivations of things like estimating fringing capacitance by use of a variational method. This is an excellent book to have fun with and read for insight as a first introduction to some RF topic or to gain further insight and perspective once you have some mastery of some topic, but the level is somewhat uneven, so that for many topics you may wind up having to use a more traditional, dry standard text like Ramo's Fields and Waves if you seriously need to design something. However, this is a great text in the sense that it is unique and so well-written and interesting that if it is around your desk, you will find yourself thumbing through it when you get bored of a task at the office just to learn something new to break up the day.

So far I've enjoyed this book. I'm a grad student taking a microwave engineering course, this was an additional book recommended by the instructor. I found that there is far more discussion in this book and more steps taken for deriving forumlae, making for an easier to read and interesting book.
